MD-MBA Dual Degree Program

The MD-MBA degree requires five years of education. Medical students will complete the first three years of medical school curriculum. The fourth year will take place within the School of Management (see below). Please note: While you are in the School of Management your financial aid award will be decreased due to the decreased tuition charges. For further information please contact the Financial Aid Department. The fifth and sixth year will consist of a modified medical school curriculum (see below).

The MBA portion of the dual degree program can only be taken after completion of the third year of medical school. Students apply separately to both Schools. Applications do not have to be submitted concurrently. Applicants should review admissions requirements. Applicants to the MD/MBA program are not required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the GRE provided that they have previously taken the MCAT. If you are an early assurance medical student, you will be required to take the GMAT or GRE. Personal advisement is available at the Graduate Programs Office in 203 Alfiero Center, North Campus.
